We're excited to see your works!

LitArt Hub is accepting short stories, poems, and artworks. We welcome works from budding talents looking for a space to express. Our doors are also open for experienced creatives who wanted to experiment or strike a fresh path.

We are looking for writing and art that are captivating, inspiring, and/or moving. Only submit works that were not previously published (including digital and/or online content) and to which you have ownership. We are not grammar nazis, but we prefer entries with little to no grammar and spelling errors. 

Although we accept most genres and even cross-genre works, there are themes we give a hard pass on. We do not accept stories that include graphic violence, gratuitous sex, and vulgar language. 

It may take a bit of an effort but process each submission individually. We do not accept multiple submission in one document/file

We will not collect submission fees, but we are highly selective with pieces we publish. We request that you wait for our response before resending your work. 

We know that you pour your heart into your pieces. Unfortunately, we are unable to pay our contributors at this time. That is why we accept simultaneous submissions. But if your work was picked up elsewhere, send us an email at to withdraw your submission. 

We accept original stories that have not been published previously. We consider social media posts and other online content as digitally published works.
